Links to all my save-game topics

Post by Baldy's Boss » 23 Nov 2015 01:47

I've been starting a new topic for each game of which I post a save here.Though most of the saves I've posted have been over on General because there are issues I'm asking or commenting about in the ongoing game,I generally post here at least twice,when a game reaches the date I'm playing it in game time ("is up to date") and when it reaches January 1st 2051 for ranking ("at the finish line").

I believe the first I posted here was when Old Plonnville Green became "up to date":
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=70250
Old Plonnville was the first of my current games to make it to 2051,and I contrasted it with one that failed:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=70395
Another doomed effort of that era was Gondborough Rail Group:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php? ... &p=1113035
Wardwood Western,a later effort,also went under:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php? ... &p=1149416
Here's Wardwood in earlier happier times,when it was up to date:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=72856
I made one post of one of my holdover games from when I first tried 1.1.x:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=70949
Rartown Brown Railroad,my last no-NewGRF-vehicle game,got up to date in style,and finished with record revenues:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=72866
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=73164
After Wardwood I fared better with NewGRFs with the Buborough & Penbourne,first up to date and then at the finish:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=73390
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=73692
Lately Malberg Mauve R.R. has gotten up to date,and has just finished with record profits,balance,and company value:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=73969
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=74090
Bundton & Malbourne R.R. has gotten up to date,and is closing in on the finish.
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=74026

After the B&M reaches 2051 it will be a while before any other games show up here...the four next in the pipeline are in the 1930s,with three of them just started there and one started 1901,
and other games started 1887 and at 1906,started 1865 and at 1880,and started 1837 and at 1849.

EDIT:here's B&M at 2051:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic/php?f=60&t=74181

The 1901-start game is now around 1949.

But I want to learn from each game played for better future play...and I post these games hoping for analysis and comment.Comparisons welcome!

The 1901 game has now reached today.
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=74734

Next in the pipeline is a game started in 1887 that has reached the 1940s.

Yesterday I actually played a little further on Betston Blue (the failed game,topic 70395) and found that though I plunged into subzero in late 1974 I was actually able to turn a profit for 1975.

I just brought the Little Old World Red Railroad up to January 1st 2051 today:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=75168

I have brought Betston Blue up to January 1980 using what I now know about gameplay and the company barely looks like it was sick,but Gondborough appears beyond saving...even if I fork from before my last bad merger.

Next in the pipeline remains Jubilee Rail(started 1887),now at 1969,with the 1865 game now up to the 1930s and the 1837 game at 1910.

Jubilee Rail Group has been brought up to today (October 21st 2016) in great shape at nearly 130 years of age.
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=75380

The 1865 and 1837 games are each a bit past 100 years old but neither in such good shape and the 1865 company pretty sick.

As for Betston Blue,I look back sadly on my 1980 optimism,it seems hopeless.

Now Jubilee Rail Group has reached 2051,after 164 of the maximum 170 years of inflation...

My 1865 start company (Green Victory RR) is doing rather well in the 1990s.

You could just put all of your saved games in one topic, and save yourself the hassle of having to create a new topic each time :D

It may have been doing well in the 1990s,but 152-year-old Green Victory Railroad is in bad shape in 2017:

The Sesninghill & Freaway has reached 2051:

Unfortunately the Tillydean Grand Victorian,started in 1837,appears foundering in terminal failure in 1951.

Tradingbury Mountain RR,which began running trains from Tradingbury that needed a mountain to be subdued,has reached its playdate
viewtopic.php?f=60&t=83503
and the "finish line":
viewtopic.php?f=60&t=84103
A 2051 that is far from all maglev,thanks to broader options available.

Liverbridge Jintyrail will probably be my next game posted...after all my desire to see the original-TT entry-level engine,the Jinty,back it certainly proved unequal to the challenge of mountainous terrain and that game,starting in the 1930s as original TT did,
has moved on to the 1970s with far more capable equipment.
